Family Photo Shoot with Leanne

Did a family photo shoot with the Leanne’s family over the weekend and below are some of the photos.

We did the photo shoot at East Corrimal beach. There’s a playground there, parking is close to the beach and it is not as crowded as Fairy Meadow or North Wollongong beach.

The shoot was a lot of fun and the kids loved it! There’s one photo below of the family doing “Silly Faces”.

Weekend at the Snowies!

Spent the weekend at Threadbo doing some snowboarding. Brought my goPro Helmet Camera along and here’s some random shots taken from the highest T-Bar in Australia!

It was a fun weekend as we had an awesome group who were a good mix of boarders and skiers (predominantly skiers though).

And I figured why not add one of me falling backwards off my board too. 🙂

I Love Holding my Breath

Did a video shoot for Mishka on Tuesday Morning for the ABC Open Project. Below is photo from the shoot. I like the concept of using hand written notes, especially underwater!

Scuba Diving with Seals at Martin Island

Last Sunday, I did a dive with Seals off Martin Island. Normally if I wanted to dive with Seals, I would have to drive down South to Mystery Bay to dive off Montague Island. That’s a couple of hours drive to get to Mystery Bay and a fairly long boat ride out to get to the island. But during the winter, the Seals head up north and spend some time on Martin Island, which is only a short boat ride off Wollongong Harbour on the United Divers Boat. Here are some photos taken from the dive.

UPDATED: There is also a video of the dive at

Mountain Bike Riding at Appin

Went Mountain Bike Riding at Appin last Saturday. Being a first time mountain biker, it wasn’t a good idea to take my camera on the ride, so here are a few shots taken before and after the ride. There is a post at Wollongong Fitness about how the mountain bike riding went.
